New York: Random House, 1943. First Edition. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. 4to (9 x 11 1/4"), cloth backed glazed pictorial boards, slight bit of rubbing and small chipping along the edges, a few light scratches to the boards, lacking dust jacket, else in fine condition. A remarkable copy, beautifully signed and inscribed on the half-title page in fountain pen, "To Joan, With best wishes, Walt Disney." The Gremlins was Roald Dahl's first children's book and originally conceived as a promotional tool for a feature-length Disney cartoon. Although pre-production had begun, the studio dropped the project due to copyright regulations and restrictions ordered by the Royal Air Force, which was portrayed in the story. Even unsigned first editions of this book are rather scarce and prized by collectors, and with its large, gorgeous Disney signature gracing the half-title page, this is a superior example.
